University Copyright Ownership Policies


UCOP (University Copyright Ownership Policies) is an interactive semantic database of university copyright ownership policies. The database pages look at who owns the copyright to various categories of work produced by university staff, faculty, and students; exceptions to those default rules; and overall policy clarity.

Creative Commons cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information contained herein. None of the information contained in this database should be construed as legal advice. Consult with your university legal department if you have questions about your university's policies.
